First report of Cotton leaf curl Gezira virus and its associated alphasatellite and betasatellite from disease affected okra plants in the United States
Plant Disease 103 (12), 3291-3291
Abstract: During 2018, okra plants (Abelmoschus esculentus cv. Clemson Spineless) grown in Texas, U.S.A. were observed with symptoms of foliar yellow mosaic, bleaching, and vein clearing. An outbreak of the disease developed on a 4.9-ha okra farm. By mid-growing season, disease incidence was 100%, which led to total crop loss. The presence of Cotton leaf curl Gezira virus was demonstrated in the symptomatic plants using PCR analysis and nucleotide sequencing.
